Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I should have kept better track of my cookie recipes from college. I should have also started my blog back in college instead of pouring countless hours into LiveJournal and Xanga writing about all my feelings and teenage angst. Shoulda, coulda, woulda. During my undergraduate years when everyone else was studying for finals, frantically writing papers,
